I'm a student taking the cisco beginners course, but I'm running into some problems with subnetting.
When you have this network setup below, what are the valid number of hosts, and how does one calculate that. If I just take the host bits (n = 11) and apply 2^n then I get 121 as outcome. Which ofcourse is wrong. Could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
Network address: 10.0.0.0 Subnet mask: 255.255.248.0 Network address in binary: 00001010.00000000.00000000.00000000 Subnet mask in binary: 11111111.11111111.11111000.00000000
